I was at this run, as well as at Ventura the following weekend. I'm still trying to figure out how the boys coordinated the shooting star across the night sky on Friday the 13th with a full moon hanging over the Golden Gate Bridge as Phil hit those first opening notes of the encore. As great a moment as it was, the Sunday show tends to stand out more in my mind. Also, the show started 2 hours earlier each day. Friday at 5 (so night by second set); Saturday at 3; and Sunday at 1. Gone are the days...

" was at this run, as well as at Ventura the following weekend."

Ventura's rodeo dust pit was quite the comedown from the Greek, right? :)

I was front row right in front of Phil so I didn't see the shooting star. This was the show I could have spent in jail, but wound up pressed up to the rail at the Greek instead, on Friday the 13th. Just my luck.

The Dark Star was wonderful, it is not '69 but the jam meanders to a lot of interesting places, the feedback outro has the most juice. Left me out in the ethers. I remember walking around after the show in a purple gel haze...then we got in line for the next nights show.

Been here so long we got to callin' it home...

We're you back in 85'? Are you from Oregon?

That picture is of my friend Doug, sadly not with us anymore. He was a fellow deadicated "sit in line all night" kind of guy. That is the left side entrance of the Greek Theater, spent many hours there waiting to get in. Man I miss that!

I was back in '85, and back at the rail again. I was living on the east coast from the fall of '83 until 1990. I came back for The Greek shows every single year.

I live in SEA right now...and I enjoy the perks of living in Seattle in the summer.
